its all a gimmick btw, the nology wires. They really aren't that great of a wire compared to others.

Why even waist your time. For a few dollars more just get the NGK Blues.

wouldn't the grounding wires introduce interference into the signal?

well you need a positive and a ground to have a spark right? i was thinking this can be beneficial since theres a better ground than other ignition wires

yes it is..but the only ground i see is from the coil pack right? i'm wondering if it's beneficial since i have a grounding kit going to the valve cover..so theres more grounding throughout my motor

The electrode in the middle of the plug is the positive. The threads of the plug are the ground. No other ground necessary.

the outer threads are ground right? ..that ground wire is connected to the threads then you ground it to the chassis for better grounding..hmm

does the valve cover itself act as a good ground? the chrome plastic bolts sure dont. i mean i dunno, probably just benefit more from a typical 8mm wire.
